Rocho came back for American Ninja Warrior 3 with his wife Hope who failed the Log Grip. Dustin finished 23rd in the Qualifying Round, and was one of many to fail the Unstable Bridge in the semifinals. Like the others who failed the Unstable Bridge that day, Rocho advanced to Boot Camp, where he was defeated by Brandon Douglass on the Heavenly Ropes.
Not deterred by his defeat, Rocho returned for American Ninja Warrior 4 to compete in the Southwest region. Rocho secured a top 30 finish in the qualifier, but in the semifinals, he lost his grip on the Jump Hang and ruptured his eardrum in the resulting fall. He did not advance to the Vegas course.
He then competed in American Ninja Warrior 5, and even though he was exhausted after the Floating Chains, he completed the qualifier. In the Venice Beach Finals, he completed the course as well. In Las Vegas,he made it through the first 3 obstacles, but failed at the Jumping Spider.
He came back for another shot at the course in American Ninja Warrior 6, and finished Venice Qualifying with the fifth-fastest time. In the Venice Finals, he failed the Body Prop, but that was far enough to qualify him for the Las Vegas Finals.
